COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Much like its legendary predecessors, this Yeti is big, bold and dark.† The addition of rolled oats softens Yetiís notoriously roasty backbone and the small amount of raisins added in the brew kettle create a unique dark fruit character.† Just as admired as those that came before it, Oatmeal Yeti Imperial Stout is a softer beast.

GregClow (2858) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle courtesy of rudolf - thanks! Deep, dark black with coffee & cream coloured head. Fantastic aroma of dark charred malt, chocolate, dark dried fruit, a bit of burnt oak. Full, soft body. Complex flavour with deep notes of chocolate, coffee, raisin and dry roast. Solidly but not aggressively hopped, with lingering notes of bitter chocolate, licorice and a bit of spruce. Wonderful stuff!

BeerandBlues2 (9465) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours opaque black with a large, frothy and creamy brown head, medium retention with good to excellent lacing. Aroma is roast, chocolate, and coffee malt with oats, raisins, figs, dates, and prunes, earthy and spicy hops. Flavor is dark malt, milky with oats, dark dried fruits, medium hops and moderate bitterness, some alcoholic bite and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

onceblind (3966) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Black pour with a thin khaki head. Amazing aroma of roasty black malt, dark bakers cocoa, and a weird herbal and perfumy oatmeal tone that comes together really nicely. Flavor unfortunately is kinda acrid with dark roasty black malt acidity, earthy oatmeal, dark bittersweet cocoa, but has a semi-sweet ending with nice raisin and chocolate cookie tones.

Thisis12ptfont (828) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Slightly peppery chocolate malt aroma with a hint of raisin and almond. Pure black appearance with no foam whatsoever. Somewhat milky overtones with chocolate, mocha and nutty background flavor. Finish is espresso, raisin and oats with hinted alcohol. Overall, a little lacking on flavor and complexity yet, pleasantly drinkable.

Sampled at the brewery. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of chocolate and oatmeal and roasted malts, some light coffee and dough, plus a light bitterness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of everything. Smooth to thick texture. A solid beer.

25th rating for this one and my personal 100th impy rating, from a bomber (bottled JUN 25 2013). Nose huge dark chocolate and roast, coffee character with plummy fruit and a touch of smoke in the far bg. Soul-consuming black pour with a light brown head (Miles runs that voodoo down). Taste medium-bitter with medium plum-and-grape sweetness, a little airy, big roast and dark chocolate, burned coffee (and unfortunately the stale kind), some etoh fumes showing, dries out toward the end and allows the silken bitterness to flourish. Smooth, fat full body, lightly creamy without being oily. I loved the idea of oatmeal and raisins in one of my favorite stouts, but the execution falters here, and the various flavors just arenít mixing at all. Perhaps with some age?
